About It Ain't Me Babe

"It Ain't Me Babe" is a song by Bob Dylan that originally appeared on his fourth album Another Side of Bob Dylan, which was released in 1964 by Columbia Records. According to music critic Oliver Trager, this song, along with others on the album, marked a departure for Dylan as he began to explore the possibilities of language and deeper levels of the human experience. Within a year of its release, the song was picked up as a single by folk rock act the Turtles and country artist Johnny Cash (who sang it as a duet with his future wife June Carter).

Go away from my window;
Leave at your own chosen speed;
I'm not the one you want, babe;
I'm not the one you need;
You say you're looking for someone
Who's never weak but always strong
To protect you and defend you
Whether you are right or wrong ?
Someone to open each and every door,

But it ain't me babe;
No, no, no, it ain't me babe;
It ain't me you're looking for, babe.

Go lightly from the ledge, babe;
Go lightly on the ground;
I'm not the one you want, babe;
I'll only let you down;
You say you're looking for someone
Who'll promise never to part ?
Someone to close his eyes to you ?
Someone to close his heart ?
Someone to die for you and more,

But it ain't me babe;
No, no, no, it ain't me babe;
It ain't me you're looking for, babe.


You say you're looking for someone
To pick you up each time you fall,
To gather flowers constantly
And to come each time you call
And will love you for your life
And nothing more,

But it ain't me babe;
No, no, no, it ain't me babe;
It ain't me you're looking for, babe.

Johnny Cash

John R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003), was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music icon, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—as well as blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal led to Cash being inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Gospel Music Hall of Fame. more »
